Near by Vet nary Clinic
Title of the land is clear is not or their any litigations or not
Easy transport from your place

Before starting the goat farming it is very essential to acquire goat management skills as this will help you in knowing the advantages of goat farming over sheep farming or other small ruminants like rabbit, different types of goat breeds in India and which breeds will be more suitable and can survive in your environment of Climate, types of farming but I recommend you to do semi intensive farming as less usage of fodder can be used from your land and animals can get exercise which can also help the Goats to be active during Mating Season, feeding schedule, breeding methods such folk system, pen system and Artificial Insemination, types of diseases like PPR, ET, Goat Pox that will effect goats, labour and fodder management and many more Management Styles.
Don’t purchase the live stock from local market, planned the fodder according to seasons and in time, managing the labour properly, vaccinating the live stock at specific time and with experience Nurse, Keeping qualified doctors for advice, beware of the Goat disease out break in surrounding areas, don’t buy the Live stock during Rainy Season, precaution against like serious diseases during Rainy Season, Security of farm from outsiders and not to allow the farmers to enter in your farm who are coming from Goat Diseases affected area.
Here are the few advantages of Osmanabadi Breed:
1- These goats are native of Osmanabad which enjoys its border with A.P; Osmanabad has similar type of climate as some parts of A.P and Karnataka. These goats can shows a very good performance in all the state of India.
2- Osmanabadi goat shows a very efficient reproductive performance and resistance against diseases not only in well managed semi stall feeding system but also in severe drought conditions. As per research conducted by NARI on Osmanabadi Goats in Maharashtra, in spite of drought which occurred in 2007 and 2008, there was no drop in the productivity rate of Osmanabad goat (Nimbkar, Pawar and Chavan 2010- NATIONAL SEMINAR on Stress Management in Small Ruminant Production and Product Processing Jaipur 29-31 January 2010)
3- The age at the first kidding is around 15 months with the lactation length of around 130 days. The dressing percentage varies from 55- 60 %. In favourable conditions the does will breed twice a year, twinning is very common and the milk yield ranged form 700 gm to 1500 gm.
4- From 30 kg live weight, you will get 18 kg of meat. In this 12 kg loss is due to non edible part of meat like Viscera, Hide, etc.
5- The leather of osmanabadi goat is fairly of good quality and its meat is preferred by majority of the rural and urban population in southern India.
6- In the end the weight of 6 months of Kid will be 22-25 Kg in well managed farm.
If you can purchase / have the land we can arrange for you project report on Osmanabadi Goats after taking all your details and requirements so that you can submit it to local bank for the loan approval and it will take 2 months from initial start.

Whichever is the business, want to become profitable needs following things (Goat / sheep point of view):-
1)Quality animals:- Animals which can sustain in perticular climatic conditions & having proper breed character needed for goatary business.Eg- According to geographical situations,anima accustoms with environment & give production.From these animals ,selection of good quality animals.
2)Management- As the production of animal is increases according to high quality animals demand for good quality fodder,concentrate,water,housing and care is needed more .If this is not fulfilled ,then goat owner can have a loss in terms of less meat production as well as economic losses.So it is necessary for goat owner to access his strength for providing this kind of facilities for its animals.So for that if goat owner has good kind of knowledge (By training & practice)and will to do whatever work in his goat farm,then he can be profitable goat farmer.As per my knowledge this is 24 hours business & it can not be as supervisor's job.
3)Facilities:- Whatever facilities required for dairy like availability of farm land,availability of fodder throughout the year,availability of veterinarian,skill for first aid treatment,skill for feed formulation is important for goat farmer.Goat owner must provide minimum kind of facilities which are needed for his animals.
4)Market- Before producing meat or other goat product,it is better to search what are market opprtunities in your area.See if there is no any goat farm functioning in your area what are the resions behind it?If there is no any farmer who dare to take this entreprice then it is opportunity to you set up good quality of goat farm.If market is not there ,try to create your own market by creating demand for your product in the market.
5)Value addition- In business of goat farming,it is better to not to rely on only one entreprise or product eg- meat,If you do value addition in kid for weight gin in short time or good male kids for breeding purpose etc.,You will get more money,If you do value addition in goat dung by preparing vermicompost you will get more money .
So think on this aspect, Do personal visits for survey the area,try to find out market as well as study market chains developed in that perticular area.Then make decision for dairy farming .
6)To be updated- For goatowner it is necessary to aware about new practices & changes in goat farming.So for that he must take training before starting the goat or any animals related enterprise & after that timely necessary trainings to become updated .New practices,trends & changes in management will be helpfult to reduce the losses & improve production of animals.He must be adaptive & positive in nature & willing to take responcibilities or change as & when needed.
7) Keep records- Some farmers which do not have land but are successfully run their business because they keep records for feed,fodder,Meat/Milk production,Reproduction,health & management aspects.In which they can get ideas as well as point our problematic points or situatuation to avoid losses.Today,many goat farmers are not keeping records as like businessman,so they do know what is the status of the goatary they are running now.
On the above points,you may decide number of animals to be kept for goat farming which can run sucessfully.Also visit to nearest goat farms which are running their farms very well & then share the ideas with them for runing successful goat farm.
